Letters

  • Moist vote = Economic development

    Henry County residents have a unique opportunity facing them at the polls on Dec. 13. When you go to the voting booths on that day, voters will have the chance to vote yes or no on whether the county will go moist and allow our county to move forward with economic development.

  • Vote for Sanders

    I am writing this letter in support of my brother Billy Sanders for the position of the Henry County jailer.  So often we get caught up in voting for the political party that we are affiliated with instead of who is really the best candidate for the job, especially on the local level.  

    There are three candidates running for this position and I’m sure all are upstanding citizens of Henry County, but there is really only one who is qualified and experienced to do this job on day one and that is Billy Sanders.

  • Vote Sanders for jailer

    My name is Gregory Walker and I have been a resident of Henry County for approximately 25 years. I have known Billy Sanders during this time and am also well acquainted with his family. Billy stepped in as Henry County jailer and took the position when the elected jailer decided to quit. He has maintained this position since that time and has done so in an excellent manner.

  • Vote for Scott Southworth

    My name is Gloris Southworth, and I would like to introduce you to my son, Scott Southworth, who is running for the office of Henry County jailer in the November election.

    Scott is a life-long resident of Henry County. He chose to remain close to his roots and family throughout the years. You will find that he is a very hard-working, honest and dependable person. These traits date back to his teenage years when his dad, Lee, and I could depend on him to operate our businesses in New Castle during our absence.

  • Proud to call Henry County home

    Soon after our marriage in 1987, Lyndon mentioned that “Some day I would like to move back home to Henry County.” Being a Lexington girl, reared in the suburbs, I thought to myself “Over my dead body we’ll move ‘back home to Henry County!’ ”

    But, as fate would have it, in 1998 we came to Henry County. I immediately felt the loving welcome showered on me by all. I was comfortable from the beginning. Henry County felt like a warm and caring community in which to raise a family.

  • Thank you for making this year’s fall festival a great success

    Homestead Nursing Center wants to thank all the many volunteers, individuals and businesses who donated their time and prizes for our Fall Festival that was held on Oct. 14.

    The Festival’s success would not have been possible without them. Just as important we want to thank the community for coming out and supporting our residents through your purchases and participation.

  • Farmers Market members thank supporters

    The members of the Henry County Farmers Market would like to thank all those involved in the success of our recent Customer Appreciation Day. Big thanks to: Smokin’ Aces BBQ (visit them on Saturdays in front of the former laundromat in New Castle) for grilling and serving up some fantastic hot dogs; Sarah Sutherland for providing our karaoke entertainment; and James Sanders, balloon artist extraordinaire, for delighting the children with wonderful balloon creations.

  • Current jailer responds

    My name is Billy Sanders and I am the appointed Henry County Jailer.

    A few weeks ago, both the Republican and Democratic Parties announced their nominations for the Nov. 8 election. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and declare my intention to run as an independent, write-in candidate. To the citizens of Henry County, I say this: I love my job and I am the best qualified candidate.

  • Success at school hinges upon stability at home

    Summer is nearing an end and children all across Kentucky have or soon will be headed back to school. While many students may groan at the thought of homework, tests, book reports and science projects, most are also excited to see old friends and to get a fresh start on a new year.

  • LeCompte’s Bottom Road children deserve bus service

    I read with interest “Families petition for bus service,” that appeared on page one, Aug. 10, 2011, in the Henry County Local. It brought back recollections that my dad and mother worked through to get a school bus for the Smithfield grade school students.
